Triangle Brewing

by Sean on May 6, 2011

As much ire as the Papazian Beer City poll causes, North Carolina is truly a beer hub to be proud of and it is certainly on my list of places to visit even though Portland remains dear and first in my heart. But here are some Triangle beers to consider.

Triangle Imperial Amber
“This strong amber ale (8.2%abv) has a strong malt presence that holds this brew together. IBUs of around 90 balance the brew which is dry hopped to add an invigorating citrus and floral aroma that lingers to the end while complementing all that malt. It is excellent with food as well as served by itself or in the company of a fine cigar. Silver Medal Winner at 2009 and 2010 Carolina Championship of Beer.

Food pairings: Best as a pre-dinner drink (hops are a great appetite stimulant), heartier fare, spicy foods, pizza, pub grub or as an after dinner drink enjoyed with a cigar.”

White Ale
“Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Triangle White Ale is unique and truly refreshing. The style gets its name from the white, slightly cloudy appearance of this unfiltered wheat ale. Brewed with a generous amount of white and red wheat that is grown locally in Scotland County, NC, and our own special blend of organic spices, makes Triangle White Ale complex in flavor without being overpowering or cloying. Overall, it is a beer that is light, fruity and very drinkable during a hot summer day. 5% abv. Silver Medal winner at the 2010 Carolina Championship of Beer.

Food pairings: Great with seafood, shellfish, poultry. Peppery and tangy cheeses also work well with White Ales.”

And if I have read my All About Beer magazine correctly. The white ale comes in cans now!
